This collection brings together four of Copi’s best-known works for the stage: Eva Perón, The Homosexual, The Four Twinsand Loretta Strong. Set on the borderline between reality and delirium, and featuring such charismatic icons as Eva Perón and Greta Garbo, Copi’s plays are imbued with his trademark racy wit and manic pace, intended at once to unsettle the bien-pensants and to open up radically new insights.
The product of one of the most talked-about dramatists in the French language since Arrabal and the advent of the theatre of panic, Copi’s works continue to shock and challenge to this day.
Raúl Damonte Botana (1939–87), better known as Copi, was an Argentinian writer, dramatist and cartoonist. Famed for his provocative and irreverent writing, Copi is best remembered for his prose fiction and plays.
